Was Lucifer cancelled because of Sandman?

A small portion of the Lucifer fandom believed that Lucifer has been cancelled in favour of The Sandman. Neil Gaiman took to Twitter to directly deal with the issue when asked by a fan:

What is the production status of The Sandman?

Current Production Status: Pre-production (Last Updated: 07/20/2020)

In the aforementioned interview with Digital Spy, Neil Gaiman confirmed that shooting was supposed to begin at the end of May 2020.

“We’re working with Netflix, we were meant to start shooting at the end of May.

Given this COVID world, everything is on pause.”

Neil Gaiman has already made it clear that once the production of other series begins so too will The Sandman.

On his blog on Tumblr Gaiman had the following to say:

“It’s going really well, except it’s kind of hibernating right now until people start making TV again. The scripts for the first season are written, casting had started, directors hired, sets were being built. Everything was ready to go into production, and then we moved into a pause. As soon as the world is ready to make TV drama, Sandman will move smoothly back into being made. In the meantime, we are taking the opportunity to get the scripts as good as we can.”

In September 2020, The Illuminerdi reported that they had bought on Doctor Who direct David Hayes into the production but this was quickly swatted down by Neil.

How many episodes will The Sandman season one air?

Neil Gaiman himself confirmed the number of episodes the first season will debut with that being 11 episodes.
